splash pad frequently asked questions

What sizes do the splash pads come in? What is the smallest size?

The smallest size is a 9 foot circle with 4 assorted nozzles for $8500.00 (additional travel expenses may apply). The pads can be any shape and any size. We built a splash pad in a full size basketball court so the players could cool off while playing. The size and shape are only limited by your imagination.

How is the water kept clean?

The system has a chlorinator and a UV light sanitizer/clarifier to kill 99.99% of bacteria and viruses. The UV light is a unique feature to My Splash Pad kits. For optimum results, the chlorinator should be checked daily when the splash pad is in use.

Will this affect my water bill?

There is a cost associated with the initial fill of the system. The systems don’t usually require much water after that. The average tank is 250 gallons.

What is the average monthly cost to run the system?

If it is on for eight hours a day for 30 days it would cost approximately $20 to $40 per month, depending on your electric rates.

What do you do with it in the winter?

In late fall the pipes need to be blown out so that the lines don’t break in the winter. This is similar to what’s required for a sprinkler system. A small air compressor is all that’s needed and it takes about half an hour to do the job.

What options do I have for the surface?

The pad is built using concrete with a light bromine over it to make it a non-slip surface, or the concrete can be stamped and colored. The best surface, however, is PolySoft, the leader in safety surfaces and the only surface to have a critical fall rating. This material comes in many colors, and designs and logos can be incorporated into it as well.

How long does it take to install a splash pad?

Our trained installers can install a complete system in one week.

How soon can I landscape or reclaim the areas surrounding the splash pad?

Our recommendation is no earlier than four days after the splash pad install is completed. The concrete needs three days to cure. Any interruption in the curing process puts the splash pad at risk for damage; such damage wouldn’t be covered under warranty.
